"Writing the essay for the Siemens–ASCP scholarship changed my perspective about what I wanted to do in my career. The essay made me realize that I wanted to go beyond cytology screening. I though about aspiring to a management position, learning more about molecular diagnostics, and teaching laboratory professional students. In the few years since I graduated, I have achieved all three goals outlined in my essay for the Siemens–ASCP scholarship"
